's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the reality is, dana, is that, you know, either you listen to what the weather reports are. government's not go
, get obama's back. al gore's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the reality is, dana, is that, you know, either you listen to what the weather re
-- >> and minnesota, minnesota is not even a key swing state. you've got bill clinton going in because a new poll shows mitt romney within the margin of error in minnesota. plus, you have some information about some space where the republicans are about to start rushing in and putting up campaign ads that are not states that the obama team thought they would have to worry about one week out. >> we're going to go into election day not knowing. i don't care how rabid a partisan you are, we're going to go into election day not knowing who is going to win this. the race is simply too close, too many variables and the storm has a lot of new ones. we just can focus on what we see. one thing we see is democrats are playing a little bit more definition than they thought they would. and if you bring those states in to the electoral college picture, minnesota, pennsylvania, maybe michigan, where republican allies of mitt romney are now going on the offensive, it changes the electoral college outlook quite a bit. not saying governor romney's going to win any of those. they say we're not going to lose these
for relief efforts for the people that are going to be impacted by the storm and bill clinton raced out there to politicize this by saying electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. i guess its fitting considering this has been the nastiest campaign run by president civility and company that we've ever seen. >> yeah. incredible. well, i think there will be three impacts from the storm politically, one which will help obama. any time there's an emergency like a blizzard or a flood or a tsunami or something, the president gets to play rescuer in chief, something bush failed to do with hurricane katrina. i'll bat obama dons his rain coat and his galoshes and shows up helping some wisconsin town sand bag against the lakes or something, and i think you'll see a lot of that. i think that that could prove very effective. that's a very good strategy that many, many governors and some presidents, even, have used. if romney is smart, he'll match him sand bag for sand bag and be out there himself doing it, so that it's a break-even situation. the worst would be for romney to criticize obama an
speaks to mtv. >> andrea: the same one that bill clinton got. boxers or briefs? you newhen you go to mtv you get to crux of the issues. >> greg: pretend serious questions. like this job must be really difficult for you. sound smart and sensitive. >> andrea: the problem is over half of youth today, college graduates are unemploy. so he can talk about the environment and the other issues but the candidates, are sitting in the parents' basement watching him on a laptop as paul ryan said looking at faded posters. visual is important. romney giving a thoughtful speech. barack obama stel trying to gen up his base. he hasn't talked about the economy. why hasn't he? why didn't he still keep a message of hope and talk about the next four years? why did he wait until this week to roll out an agenda for his second term? i get he runs from the record but he is running from economy, too. >> bob: the mtv audjens the audience to go to. it's about targeting. get out the vote. he doesn't have it in full. also keep in mind there will be 10 million more edgable voters available in 2012 than there were in 2
sunday to be in orlando this morning for the big roll-out of joint appearances with former president bill clinton. >> i was supposed to be the warmup man for president obama today. >> obama left early this morning and they believe the weather in washington detearateed so fast it would be difficult to land air force one later in the day. >> the early voters are already making decisions. you know what our decision is. what i want to do is make sure that everybody who agrees with us votes. >> key part of the obama campaign strategy is early voting which could be effected in coastal battlegrounds. today, the virginia state board of elections urged localities to keep moving forward with in-person absentee voting unless the storm makes it unsafe. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. worry about the impact on families and the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on the economy. >> it could delay friday's release of new jobs report just four days before the election. >> labor department official later said it's our intention that friday will
bring you big change. what challengers do it. we heard bill clinton do it. we heard barack obama do it. certainly. the hope and change thing is now benefiting the republicans this time. >> it transcended to their signage. it really is their closing message. >> more than election census, 1980 and 1964, this is about the proper scope and actual confidence of government. it will come down to a basic feeling that people have, who understands government better? >> i think that's fair. though, it will be interesting to see, if you had a huge hurricane that affected sometimes -- >> say a huge hurricane, for example. >> either positive or negative. they can get really angry that the response wasn't really big. or they could say, whoa, do we want to be on our own when something like this happens. >> one other potential surprise this week, we're going to get that final unemployment report coming out on friday. you're an economist. looking at the numbers right now, what are you expecting to see and how much difference will it make? >> we have seen over the last year and a half, one month's number
and former president bill clinton on the trail for him going to many of the battle ground states includi including,minnesota where the polls have shown it is up there. so, the former president will be stumping for president obama. maybe you heard yesterday that the labor department might delay those all important job numbers this friday before the election. this is from u.p.i. this morning. the labor department says it intends to release the awaited october jobs report on schedule friday despite hurricane sandy but can't be sure yet. we will give you more campaign news as we go along. first, back to phone calls. claudia in sun prairie, wisconsin, a democrat, talking about trust in government during natural disasters. go ahead, claudia. caller: good morning. i do trust in government. what i have a problem with is the obstructionism in congress by the republican party. we should have an infrastructure though in this country. look around. everything is crumbling. europe, avel to asia, come back here and is gee, what is going on? for the past four years, inauguration day, i don't know if it
. >> rose: not only that -- bill clinton is out there as t surrogate. >> and he has his campaign apparatus and advertising and the ground game. news coverage will be affected if this storm hadn't happened we would see wall-to-wall coverage of one of the most exciting punishes to a presidential election in a television age we won't see as much of that, certainly through the weekend which means whichever candidate was going to benefit more from national coverage is going to lose compared to what it would have been like, i am not sure which candidate that was going to be. >> rose: exactly right. >> in the states which matter, particularly ohio which continues to be really the key to the election, there is going to be plenty of verage, they were not tat aected by the storm, with all due respect to the sympathies and empathy of the people of ohio i think they are going to be more focused on the presidential election, in the northeast there are a lot more focus on the storm and really only one or two battle ground states truly impacted by the storm, virginia and new hampshire, perhaps, and i thi
effect. i always think about it this way. bill clinton, all right, we all love bill clinton now in retrospect even though at the time a lot of us were very from us freightstraighted with him. everything he did vanished as soon as he was gone. everything that was not awesome, which is the defense of marriage act, which is the efficient death penalty act which is an immigration bill. >> chris, you know something, 30 years of inequality has anything to do with how people have governed in washington? >> oh, i absolutely do. i think it's the fundamental thing that drives people. >> then you just confirmed my point that you should vote for romney. it's economic issues. to me inbe equality is the number one issue. >> that i agree with. >> what do you like about romney on economics? i'm curious. >> i like that there's a more definitive plan. again, there are others who would say that's bogus. >> there's no plan. i'm sorry. i'm sorry. there is no plan. >> i like the website. there is a plan. >> there's a plan because -- >> when you say plan, the plan that mccain had and every republican
television. martha: it is interesting to note bill clinton was at a university campus in minnesota the other day. he is obviously one of their biggest guns. he is the guy who some guys call the closer for president obama. why is he in minnesota, that is good question, right? >> you're forcing one of your biggest assets obviously bill clinton is, minnesota, a state ronald reagan didn't carry in 198 it tells you something. equally important you taken amajor asset away from the campaign being in florida, ohio today. so to me, there is no losing in trying to strategy. martha: i don't know if we have it, but there's a look at the race, i asked this morning, our brain room, where was carter-reagan in 1980 roughly today, at the end of october. there it is. it's amazing. jimmy carter was at 45%. this is national poll taken just days before the race. and ronald reagan was at 39%. what do you think about that? >> since i lived through it. martha: you sure did. >> i know it well. there were points reagan was ahead prior to that. what happened in those days when you can't make a perfect parallel a whole
